Camille Monet (1847–1879) in the Garden at Argenteuil

Claude Monet French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 821

In 1876, Monet made no less than ten paintings of his rented house and garden at Argenteuil. This canvas may be among the ones he painted in June, when he was working on "a series of rather interesting new things." Madame Monet seems incidental in comparison to the impressive stand of hollyhocks in the middle of the composition. Flickering brushstrokes of brightly colored paint make the canvas appear to pulsate with light.
